Flowers have been grown at the Fairbanks Experiment Farm since its beginning in 1906. Originally, they were grown for ornament around the farm superintendent's house. Those plots expanded to a few flower beds for tourists who visited the experiment farm even during the Gold Rush. In the early 1970s, the flower trials were formalized and data were recorded annually. The annual trials are available for each date in blue. Data include flowering dates, flower quality, disease susceptibility, fragrance, a performance rating and seasonal weather records. Because of budget cuts, flower trials were terminated in 2010.
